Chili, per request (Darrin, Southwest message board)

Sherri | Aug 13, 2005 06:01 PM

Here goes, Darrin, with one simple caveat: this is a "No-Bean" chili, best made the day before you want to eat it.

3# boneless beef chuck, cut into small pieces
2 TBLS oil
3+ cl. garlic
4-6 TBLS hot chili powder OR use your own blend
1 TBLS toasted & ground cumin seeds
3 TBLS flour
1 TBLS Mexican oregano
+/- 3 C. beef broth
1 lime, cut in wedges
1 C. sour cream

Heat oil in large kettle or stewpot. Add beef, stirring frequently until meat changes color, not necessary to brown it. Lower heat, stir in garlic to wilt. Combine chili powder, cumin, oregano & flour. Sprinkle over meat, stirring. Add 1/2 broth + S&P. Bring to boil, lower heat, simmer and stir occasionally for 1 1/2 hr. Add remaining broth as necessary. Cool and refrigerate overnight. Reheat before serving. Serve w/ sour cream and lime wedges
